'Manakee Orbit Earrings' are distinguished by their bold, innovative design.
This pair is handcrafted from Sterling Silver with fabric overlay called Paj Ndau which translates to "Story Cloth". These fabrics are upcycled from antique skirts bought on my travels through Laos a few years back.
Paj Ndau consists of textile arts traditionally practiced by Hmong people in which embroidery consists of bold geometric designs often realized in bright, contrasting colors.
These cloths use figures to represent stories from Hmong history and folklore in a narrative form. The patterns were a shared visual language or alternative text that fellow Hmong understood and that were important in ritual functions.
Their story is kept within them, of all the techniques which were necessary to build up the form’s quality, in particular their own, identifiable and unquestionable form as the 'Manakee Orbits' by Manaka
